posted in: Environmental Issues | 0

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking interested adults to become TEAM (Teaching Environmental Awareness in Maryland) volunteers. Our volunteers’ mission is to educate students about the Chesapeake Bay and other Maryland environmental issues. Since its inception in 1998, TEAM DNR volunteers have delivered over 1000 classroom programs to more than 30,000 students in Maryland.

Volunteers should have an outgoing personality and a strong desire to protect the Chesapeake Bay. No prior teaching experience is necessary. Currently, TEAM offers schools free classroom programs on the following topics:

* Chesapeake Bay Watershed

* Streams

* Oyster Reefs

* Horseshoe Crabs

* Chesapeake Watermen

The next workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, August 14, 2009 in the C-1 Conference Room of the Tawes State Office Building, located at 580 Taylor Ave. Annapolis, MD 21401. Participants are asked to bring their own lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

To register for a workshop, contact Amy Henry at 410-260-8828 or ahenry@dnr.state.md.us. For more information about this valuable program, visit www.dnr.maryland.gov/education/teamdnr.
